Last year during the holiday season, many readers were asking for this cake recipe. That time I didn’t get the chance to make and take the photos. But I had the recipe request in my mind, so I have planned to make gingerbread cake this year really early. So if something comes up, I still can share the recipe. I made this cake 2 weeks back and sharing it now.

The texture of the cake is really soft, spongy and moist. You will not believe that this cake is made without eggs. yes it is that good. Eggless gingerbread cake is the perfect dessert for fall and winter.

This cake has intense flavor of spices which I like most. As per your liking you can adjust the spice quantity.

To get the dominant gingery flavor, chopped ginger is added here. You can use the grated ginger as well. Or you can use the crystallized ginger too. If using crystallized ginger than you may need to increase the quantity.

7) It will becomes like a thick paste, that time switch to wire whisk. If you are using the stand mixer or electric mixer then no need to mash with spatula, directly start beating.

8) Now using the wire whisk, beat it till it gets smooth, light and fluffy.

9) Now add molasses. TIP: It is sticky liquid, so before pouring into measuring cup, spray with oil or brush with butter/oil, so it will come out from the cup very easily.

10) Beat it again till well combined.

11) Now add milk. Make sure to use the room temperature milk (not cold from the fridge).

12) Again beat it. It may curdle because of too much liquid, but it will fine once we add flour.

13) Now add flour mixture.

14) Mix it well, halfway through I switched to spatula, so I do not over mix the batter.

15) Pour the batter into prepared pan. Smooth out the surface and spread the batter evenly.

16) Bake into preheated oven for 50-55 minutes. Check by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean then cake it ready. Remove from the oven, place on wire rack and let the cake cool in the pan itself for 10 minutes.

18) Slice the cake, dust it with powdered sugar and serve.

Serving suggestions: Serve this gingerbread cake as a dessert with dusting of powdered sugar. If you want to go fancy, serve with dollop of whipped cream or lemon curd. Or you can make lemon icing and pour over the cake like I have done here in the lemon cake.
